WRAP Seminar II - Facilitator Training

WRAP Seminar II

Facilitator Training

Apply to attend a FREE WRAP® Seminar II facilitator training through the WISE Program

This course is five intensive days of workshops that prepares participants to facilitate WRAP® classes and equips them with the skills and materials to facilitate classes in their community and organization. It is for people who have completed a Seminar I WRAP® course. The WRAP® Facilitator training provides an experiential learning environment based on mutuality and self-determination. Participants in this course will be expected to participate in interactive learning activities and demonstrate their own experience with WRAP®.

This training is appropriate for anyone who would like to lead WRAP® groups, work with others to develop their own WRAP® and give presentations on mental health recovery related issues to groups or organizations.  Participants are expected to have a solid working knowledge of WRAP® and share their experiential knowledge of how WRAP® can work.



WRAP® Seminar II/Facilitator Training is an intensive course that lasts five full days (Monday - Friday). Participants must attend all five days to become a certified WRAP® facilitator. 

WISE will be hosting two WRAP® Seminar II/Facilitator Trainings in Sacramento, CA this summer. The dates for these trainings are:

July 17-21, 2017

August 21-25,2017

All training details including times, locations, and logistics will be sent to successful applicants once they are officially enrolled. 

Participants will be responsible for getting to and staying in Sacramento during the training week. Some participants may be eligible for WISE financial assistance to help offset the costs of attendance. We will provide more information about this assistance to applicants who are selected to attend.
